About Rafael

Young entrepreneur and CoFounder of the first Air-charter platform in Brazil “FLY HEAVEN”, The New Way To Flying Private.

After developing “Avicare”, establishing new strategies for “Fly Heaven”, and acquiring knowledge and ability to learn faster from customers, I am on a verge to develop my new Project in the new global hub “Panama”. Relocated to turning entrepreneurial vision into reality through building a business to provide solution to optimize operational performance with a particular focus on mobile technology, new product development, and national infrastructure project development.

Advancing through a series qualification including a graduation in Civil Aviation, attaining commercial pilot licenses and competing wide range of courses in business and project management, I have developed my skills as a multi-faceted professional. I have started my career as a Director for “AviCare”, and progressed through various roles to co-founding “FLY HEAVEN”.

As a CEO at “AviCare”, and CEO and CIO at “FLY HEAVEN”, I have planned and developed all functions for both companies from strategizing vision and mission to directing the financial, marketing, sales and technological aspects. Further, I have played a vital role by directly contributing in designing business model, recruiting and developing highly skilled teams, as well as creating companies’ culture.
